Interesting, Early British Boxwood Rule marked with Swedish and Metric Graduations.
This rule was made by Rabone in Birmingham, England. It's a four-fold, two-foot boxwood rule with a top quality brass arch joint. It's marked on the inside faces with metric units.

Sweden adopted the metric system in 1889 which gives us a good idea of when this rule was made. It's clean and sound with mild patina and no major damage. It's an interesting rule for sure.

Interesting Chain Drill .
This chain drill is meant to be used in a bit brace and is used for drilling odd shaped objects like pipe where the drill must be pulled into the work. This example has the Feb. 18, 1890 patent which cover's McCoy's jaw design. It's marked "Crabler & Co., Cleveland, Ohio' on the chuck. Crawler was a steam and pipe fitting supply house at the turn of the 20th century. This design looks a lot like Millers Falls, who also employed the McCoy patent on a number of their braces at the time. I would speculate that it's a Millers Falls-made tool. It's in very good condition with almost all original finish and in perfect working order
